The best way to pick (harvest) mushies?
    #4313701 - 06/19/05 02:45 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

What is the best way to harvest mushies, by getting it as close as possible to the base of the stalk? I used tweezers last time, but it tore at the half point of the stalk.

Can someone give any suggestions?

Grasp the stem just above the base and twist. It'll pop right out  :thumbup:

Do use the tweezers to get pieces(if any) out of the substrate.

No, lol. I find the verm comes off real easy after they are cracker dry.
Sometimes you gotta scrape it a little.

you'll find that when you're twisting, some shrooms will resist one direction, but when you twist it the other direction, it comes off clean.

when they fight you, it means you're pulling up extra substrate. the path of least resistance will leave the sub behind.

Twist & pull by hand. No cutting, as what you leave often rots.

I've heard that in nature, it is better to cut them at the base than to rip them out by hand.
